ambitious gun law overall this country has seen since the late 1960s. >> i will sit at that disk and sign a directive with law enforcement and schools and mental health professionals and the mental health community some of the tools they need to reduce gun violence. as they are important, they are in no way a substitute for the action of congress. it is time for a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. congress should restore a gun on military-style weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines. we have long recognized that with rights come responsibilities. >> the president signed 23 executive orders and called on congress to act, acknowledging there is no law that can prevent every act of violence. the reactions that the president's proposals are rolling in. the speaker john boehner said they will review the republicans and warned good intentions do not necessarily make good laws. the senator said president obama is abusing his power with the executive orders and the senate will hold the first post new town committee in two weeks. we know how the nra feels before the pr

he's going to ask for more aggressive prosecution of existing laws. let me separate this out a little bit. the first three items are things he's going to ask congress to do. there are actually already bills that have been introduced in the united states senate that deal with those three items. the fourth item has to do with people who essentially lie on background checks, they fail background checks. there were over 71,000 people in 2009 who failed on a background check in an attempt to purchase a gun, but only 44 of those folks were prosecuted. so the president is essentially going to order his justice department to say you know what, don't let these people fall through the cracks, prosecute the laws on the books. and interestingly enough, brian, this is something the nra, this last proposal, is something the nra says it supports. we'll see. this is going to be a tough road to hoe in congress, we know that, but one of the things about this, brian, one gun control activist said to us this is the most sweeping gun proposals since 1968, following the assassinations of r.f.k. and

school, and the president is expected to announce that he wants new laws to require universal background checks for anyone buying a gun in any state. he also wants to renew the assault weapons ban as well as a brand-new ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. >> the president has made clear that we all need to do more. and we all need to examine our consciences and acknowledge that we have not done enough to protect our children. if we had, some of the tragedies that we have seen in this country -- most recently in connecticut -- might not have happened. >> a new a.p. poll indicates a slight majority -- about six in ten americans -- now favor stricter gun laws. many more than that -- 84% -- support background checks for firearms transactions at gun shows. but when it comes to restricting high-capacity clips, some republican lawmakers are now warning a limit on one kind of big magazine just means more smaller magazines in the future. >> a ban on certain kind of magazines means more magazines. anyone who's trained at all, as i know from my time in the army, can change a
